Nuveen Asset Management has hired David Wilson as managing director to lead the firm’s newly-formed Institutional Solutions Group.
Reporting to Bill Huffman, president of the firm, Wilson and his team are charged with crafting and delivering customized investment strategies to defined benefit pension plans, public funds, foundations and endowments, insurance companies and other institutional investors.
"We are excited to share this next step in the evolution of Nuveen Asset Management in the institutional space," said Huffman. "Beginning with the strategic acquisition of FAF Advisors in 2010, the addition of Bob Doll to our team in 2012, and now the creation of our Institutional Solutions Group, with David leading that effort, we are in a strong position to offer current and future institutional clients with what we believe to be a superior portfolio construction, management, and service experience.”
Wilson comes to Nuveen from fixed-income specialist Cutwater Asset Management, where he managed more than $9 billion of customized mandates.
Neuveen’s parent company, Nuveen Investments, managed approximately $216 billion as of the end of June.
